A. Oh what a sad story. It is good that you are feeding a puppy replacement milk, follow the instructions on the package for amounts at corresponding age. Keep an eye on its weight too preferably daily and if it isn't putting on weight or seems unwell have it checked by your vet. You can start introducing a puppy food in the next week or so and by 8 weeks it should be totally weaned onto puppy food. It will need vet check soon and start it's vaccines at 6-8 weeks depending on the vaccine your vet uses.
